PLENTY of drive space (got a 143gb drive, with about 75% space available). I just wonder if....when it gets down to that last 10% remaining....if I'm not waiting long enough for it to complete by itself? BUT then again, that other movie downloaded just fine, and I suspect that two Lugosi films I want to get again will also download fine....Any other ideas as to what's going on with this Stooges film?

Since the Werewolf is a larger file, and I know the Stooges file is intact it makes no sense to me. I will say that several times in the past I have had to download a movie several times (say, more than 3) to get a good copy. I love the Archive, but it is not uncommon for them to have server problems. They are based in California so they are several hours behind us. If a server goes down or acts up late at night it can be several hours before anyone realizes it. I also believe they often do maintenance on late Thursday night going into Friday. I avoid the archive on weekends, it is just too busy. This is a popular movie, and if several people all start to download the movie at the same time it might overwhelm the server. The weird part is you got Werewolf (A bigger file). That makes me think this file should be a breeze for you. I don't really believe you need a special program to download it, and I don't think the file itself is at fault. I regret I don't have a better answer for you. If it was me, I would just keep trying. Best wishes!

Last night before turning in (around 1:30 am), I started downloading three movies: Phantom Ship, Mysterious Mr Wong, and this Stooges one AGAIN. The other two downloaded perfectly....but not this Stooges one again. Seems no matter what time of day or night, it doesn't quite complete. Yeah, I know it's just a few seconds of the end credits, but still...
